Kingston City Council has recently granted stage one development approval to Cedar Woods’ Jackson Green development in Clayton South, located 19 kilometres south-east of Melbourne’s CBD.

In late 2014, Cedar Woods submitted an application to transform the former industrial site for residential use, envisaging a boutique community with a minimum of 300 dwellings offering a choice of housing types.

“Jackson Green offers a superior community lifestyle and we anticipate significant market demand for this first class urban renewal project,” says Cedar Woods’ State Manager Nathan Blackburne.

The development includes a variety of housing options, ranging from one and two bedroom apartments, to townhouses and four bedroom houses.”

The thoughtful, contemporary design of Jackson Green will cater to a broad demographic, including smaller households and the family market, to meet the needs of a growing population in the Clayton South area.

Conveniently located in Melbourne’s esteemed middle-ring south-eastern suburbs, the site is well serviced by existing infrastructure such as Monash University, Clayton Shopping Centre, two train stations, major roads, cafes, hospitals, and some of Victoria’s best recreational links, with large open spaces, golf courses and parks all nearby.

“The estate’s proximity to Melbourne’s CBD, plus its high level of amenity and range of housing options, means that it will be highly sought after,” Blackburne says.

The development is also positioned to benefit from the Labor Government’s announcement of a multi-billion dollar infrastructure investment in the area.

The package of works announced in March 2014 includes the rebuild of the train station at Clayton, the removal of every level crossing on the Cranbourne-Pakenham train line, the addition of high capacity trains and significantly reduced travel times for people living in the south-eastern suburbs.

A significant portion of the Jackson Green site will be dedicated to a central park that will provide an impressive landscaped area comprising of a children’s playground, shelter structure and open space for both residents and the wider community to enjoy.
